Unreadably bad.

This is a bit more adult than anything Piers Anthony I've read thus far. The two main humans have horrible lives: one is in a highly abusive relationship, the other is a street walker to stay alive. They are trying to save the human dreams that keep the world of Kafka alive.

I think this book deserves somewhere around 3.5. If I compare it to Ship Breaker, which I gave a 4, I prefer Ship Breaker...but I did get through this fairly quickly, which if you don't know by now, is one way I judge a book.

This tale wasn't quite believable, and a bit cliche and predictable. Unless you're a hard core Piers Anthony fan, or don't have anything better to read, it's probably not worth the time it takes to read it.

OMG...either I don't like high fantasy as much as I remember or this book is just terrible! Is Piers Anthony the Nick Cage of the fantasy publishing world? I couldn't force myself to finish this book. I got three-quarters through it and lost interest, didn't care what happened to any of the characters or how the storyline ended.

This book was one of my all-time favourites. I first read it in highschool and I believe I re-read it several times. I have never forgotton the title since then and it's been quite a long time since I first found it. I recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy, adventure and stories with a little bit more reality to it.

I remember vividly reading this on a plane from America to France when I was 15, and it was so alluring I wished the trip lasted even longer!! I remember the beautiful colors especially and extraordinary creatures especially, any youngster looking for a superb fantasy adventure should take a peek into this.

One of my favorite books back when I was 15, my first of Piers Anthony's books. It was my first book that I also couldn't put down for long, I loved and still love it. To this very day, the storyline and characters I still remember.
